Will that barrel make hunter class configuration? How much taper do you need to be legal?

The 2019 rulebook states...
(e) Barrel: A hunting style contoured barrel that tapers from chamber to muzzle. Bull barrels are not permitted...
There is no mention of how much taper it must have, just that it needs some taper to comply to the rules.

Judging from the pictures, I think it will assuming you don't put an attachment on the threaded muzzle.

Any measurable taper from chamber to muzzle is legal. If it's not a visual taper, pack a set of calipers in your range bag in case you need to prove it to be legal to be on the safe side. I did a 0.044" taper from chamber to muzzle on my smallbore rifle and it's a visually apparent taper albeit slight.

The steel barrel is a #4 taper according to the Bergara website. It should work just fine.
